the environmental protection agency, the lisa jackson is leaving at the administrator. >> right. >> that's an agency that probably needs a very, you know, strong leader to pursue its mission because it's so politically controversial. >> lastly, you think that it shouldn't be in president obama's interest to move forward of controversial nominees because, say, waste of political capital? >> well, i think that's probably the case. i wrote that about susan rice because there was another candidate, john kerry, who seemed to be e calorie qualified if not more so and would be a good secretary of state. now, being a senator doesn't always mean easy confirmation as we're seeing with the chuck hagel potential nomination. >> that's what happens when you're not a democrat or a republican enough. jill lawrence, "national journal," thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >>> what political story makes headlines in next 24 hours? but first, our amr moment. sir elton john calls for an end to the stigma attached to aids and hiv. >> the scene has changed. the prospects are great. we have this disease by the scuf
